The Company


We are a cutting-edge online platform located in the heart of the artsy Shoreditch. Since our birth in 2015, we've been allocated the title: The Guardians Top 20 Start-Ups, secured VC funding, and won numerous, prestigious awards - our ethos is not to quickly expand but to employ people that share our vision and believe in our product. A quality over quantity approach if you will.


Our Mission


We currently offer service availability in the UK's largest cities. Due to our success, we are looking to expand the platform's reach, globally. We aim to grow our firm from the bottom up, whilst bringing on talented people and placing a huge emphasis on training and development, within a start-up environment.

  • Represent an integral sub-brand of the business and with that, a young, dynamic team.
  • Researching briefs and putting together proposals for some of our bigger clients.
